I only tried twice though, because nagging her about it will only alienate her. If she wants to make a mistake, then that's on her now and you've done your best. Although it doesn't sound like your friend is in any danger of actually getting accepted.
Her not being able to get accepted is not really a source of solace, because she's wasting a lot of time. Even if she had the grades and the score, I'd say that her conception of the legal world is so warped that she'd be disappointed, and probably end up in financial ruin.
But she's kind of is messed up financially now anyway. Like I said, she's at Kmart, part-time, and even that's hanging by a thread. I think the only reason she hasn't been fired is because the manager is worried about a lawsuit (he's kind of flirty sometimes, and some of the co-workers think they're hooking up). Anyway, she took out serious loans for college. I'm surprised she even went to college. That took six years, $150K, four boyfriends, one false-alarm pregnancy, and a whole lot of SoCo.
And she kept getting side-tracked by that stupid rapper craze. She got booed off the stage at a local pub, but that's her fault for picking a spot where alternative rock bands usually play. I want to be supportive, but she wasn't that good. And she's too cute to be a rapper, so the whole thing was awkward. Going by the name "G-Spot" was also kind of awkward.
Worst of all is her temper. Sooner or later, she fights with every single person she knows or meets. She tends to get away with getting physical because she's a girl (especially with guys, because I'll admit, they think she's pretty). The other day, her boss asked her to help some customers in the athletic department because she's "good at getting physical," and she was like, "yo, I'ma show you physical," and socked him real hard in the ribs. She was in his office for a good ten minutes (according to one of her cashier co-workers), and everyone assumed they were having sex.
